Just had a fantastic meal here. There was a great selection to choose from for adults and kids alike. I had an Italian hotdog and my husband had chilli burger and the boys had hotdog and chicken nuggets. The food was well cooked, hot and really good portion size. We all had puddings (really tasty pecan pie and thick malt shake) and with drinks as well, the bill only came to £44 so really good value for money. Staff were all really nice and atmosphere was great - loved the music. Very popular so book in advance - unless like us you go early. Well worth a visit.

We had a great meal here last Sunday. Wonderful atmosphere, music, waitresses dresses all in keeping with the diner. The first time we went we drove past it twice before we realised we had arrived! The staff are very helpful and gave my daughter a sample of the cheese sauce before she placed her order. The portion sizes are huge and all freshly cooked. Just a shame it has limited opening
We will return

This is as close as you can get to America without jumping on a plane. It truly is amazing. The burgers are great. Portion sizes are huge. Brilliant experience.

Second visit here and I still love it. Upon arrival it's not what you would think, once inside it's fantastic. The atmosphere is great, when your there you can't help but sit and stare around the restaurant. It's a little piece of history sat in the middle of nowhere! The food is fantastic and the portion sizes are to die for literally... It's safe to say that you can roll out of the place to the car after! There is enough chips on your plate to sink a ship and the burgers are fantastic- some would call them proper dirt burgers!! I would also reccomend the milkshakes, amazing in taste but if you ask them you can even take it home in a takeaway cup with you for later! I will return again, great for family and friends!
